A solid biopic on the early days of the famous designer. Tautou does a fine job, but she's easily outclassed by Poelvoorde. When he disappears from the stage, the film starts to drag a little. Still, a pleasant enough watch that doesn't adhere to the classic rise and falls structure of biopics. That alone is laudable.
